One of the reasons to doubt the Red Devils is presented by West Ham. Managed astutely by Slaven Bilic, the Hammers could yet trump both United and Manchester City to a spot in the top four. When asked if he would prefer to achieve that feat or win the FA Cup, however, Mark Noble preferred the latter.
